Times are strange. My search for truth continues through all of the shifting sand we are living in. Daily I look for which scriptures apply. I don’t necessarily mean prophetically… although that’s fun to speculate.
Jude 1:18 …”At the end of time there will come scoffers, propelled by their own ungodly desires.” 1:19 These people are divisive, worldly, devoid of the Spirit.
I’m wondering more about how to live, what to say, what to do? I know God’s word holds all the keys for every era, every situation that could come… even controversy over race, protesting, masks, politics, social distancing and economic fall-out.
Jude 1:20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith, by praying in the Holy Spirit, 1:21 maintain yourselves in the love of God, while anticipating the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that brings eternal life.
Nearly finished with my yearly read through the Old Testament, I’ve launched into the 21 small letters of the New- easily read one a day. Between these books -Romans to Jude- lie treasure, practical guidelines and help.
Jude 1:22 …have mercy on those who waver; 1:23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; have mercy on others, coupled with a fear of God, hating even the clothes stained by the flesh.
I know God holds His Bride in His faithful loving sight. He will come for us when it’s time. Until then, He will lead us into becoming an ever useful building of His making, ready to be light in the darkness.
1:24 Now to the One who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand, rejoicing, without blemish before His glorious presence, 1:25 to the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time, and now, and for all eternity. Amen.
